Watching From Inside Me

I have no more tears to cry

no more fears to stir me

There is no love in me

my love a dry well

Blown away ashes of my hope

floating through the air after

a firestorm

Dreams unreachable, unattainable

entice me only when I sleep

Sorrow entwines its hurtful grip

around my heart

Squeezing, inflicting excruciating pain

I fall to my knees

praying to a power stronger than myself

asking for deliverance from some

unseen thing

Pulling at me drawing me closer

watching from within side me

How deep, how strong, such pain, such agony.

It stirrs up memories I had hidden away, so I can relate to your words.
